Pakou Lee: I am a multimedia journalist at UW-Milwaukee. My interest in journalism derived from watching television. Television was my window view to the world when I was younger. I watched everything from cartoons, talk shows, soap operas to reality shows & then one day 9/11 happened & everything changed. Soon enough, I watched the news over those cartoons, soap operas and reality shows. My ultimate goal as a journalist is to give you a voice and find stories that matters to you.
